The 2020 edition of the CarTrawler Yearbook of Ancillary Revenue by IdeaWorksCompany is the largest ever, with 81 airlines disclosing results. By every measure, 2019 was a year of overwhelmingly good ancillary revenue for airlines – which provided resilience for the challenges of 2020.
This yearbook includes first-ever current year projections. The pandemic requires an assessment of how this global event is affecting airlines and ancillary revenue. Each individual airline listing includes an ancillary revenue projection for 2020. The projection is based upon the 2019 ancillary revenue as a percentage of total revenue, with adjustments made to reflect the airline revenue and passenger traffic losses caused by the pandemic.
